French Donbas sniper heads 'security' for anti-government protests in Paris

https://www.kyivpost.com/ukraine-politics/french-donbas-sniper-heads-security-for-anti-government-protests-in-paris.html

In case anybody still had naive illusions about the yellow vests. These are fascist scum.

In 2014 and 2015, the French national and Afghanistan war veteran Victor Alfonso Lenta was in Ukraine’s eastern Donbas region where he, with a handful of compatriots, worked to establish a so-called “Légion Française à Donbass” – or French Donbas Legion.

They trained and fought alongside Russian forces and their proxies, while working to attract other foreign “volunteers,” during some of the bloodiest episodes of Russia’s hybrid war against Ukraine.

Back then, Lenta briefly became the darling of pro-Russian broadcasters and interviewers, often telling Russian-language outlets that he and his comrades were defending Donbas civilians from what he called “Ukrainian terror” and “fascist aggression.”

He admitted to fighting Ukrainian soldiers and called on more foreign volunteers to come and do the same. In photos shared of Lenta online at the time, his weapon of choice seemed to be a high-powered sniper rifle.

2. Yeah, it's basically an open secret that Russia is providing fuel for these protests.

Here's a wink from infamous chief Kremlin propagandist Konstantin Rykov:




(Translation: "Yellow vests in Moscow.. Feel the difference.." )

And then of course there's this asshole:

In solidarity with the anti-austerity agenda of the Yellow Vest protesters in France.
